Hello everyone! I'm pooped--so I'll keep it short today. I'm taking the day off from crafting & I'm gonna be lazy & watch the football games :) I need to recharge my MOJO--hee hee! We had a great time at the Halloween party & was fun catching up with our friends. Sometimes it feels like we're doing the daily grind so much we don't connect with our friends as much as we should. Ahhh, if we could always be on vacation-wouldn't that be great!!!
My card today uses the same SCS sketch #199 that I've pretty much used all week, lol--told ya I love it! I wanted to ink up this gorgeous Rubber Romance stamp "Melanie" that I got from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design and this sketch worked perfectly. These stamps always remind me of Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly for some reason--2 of my favorite actresses (love Sabrina,Breakfast at Tiffany's & Rear View Window--I lovee my old movies). I love me my Bellas but I love these too--larger w/ more drama I think!
I used the DCWV "All Dressed Up" stack which in my personal & very humble opinion is the best dp they've ever come out with--love these colors together. I gussied up her shopping bags with a flourish from Verve Stamps & some polka-dots for fun. Her dress & black shoes have stickles on them becuz' she's a DIVA! My corner brackets I make with my Fiskars Border Punch-- I just punch a long edge and then trim into right angle triangles. The sentiment is another cool one from Amy R's "Boutique Sentiments". I have to say this card is so me--the colors, the image and of course the shopping (wish I was that thin, hee hee) :)
Hope ya like it! I'll see ya back here tomorrow with another busy week in store. There are sneak peeks coming at you from Storage Units, Ink and More and Clear Dollar Stamps---and so many more projects!! Oh, almost forgot--some friends of mine started a new Yahoo group for all of us stamping/crafting addicts where there are NO RULES! Well some within reason ya know, but you can talk about all products, all companies, promote yourself & give tips and let everyone know about steals and deals you've found. It's all good & we'd love to have you--so check it out here. See ya there!
